SiOx Machines AB and Electrolux Professional are pleased to announce that SiOx will take over intellectual property, manufacturing and sales of CO2-related machines and technology from Electrolux Professional. With this transaction, the partners find that markets and customers are served in a better way.
SiOx Machines AB has been a partner of Electrolux Professional since 2007, but the cooperation was limited to industrial markets, such as plastic and rubber cleaning.
SiOx takes over the responsibility for existing customers, including service and spare part deliveries with effect from 10 dec 2021. Guarantees for existing products are not affected.
Electrolux Professional is committed to novel and green washing technologies. Textile treatment in liquid CO2, with full recovery of CO2, is a prime example. SiOx and Electrolux Professional will now be able to exploit synergies on their respective markets in a much better way. Cleaning of clothes for fire brigades is an area of particular interest, and an example for synergy.
SiOx Machines AB was formed in 2007 by Jan Hamrefors, Joachim Karthäuser and Anders Marcusson to explore industrial opportunities for high pressure CO2. The founders have extensive experience in the field, also from their work at AGA/Linde Gas. SiOx Machines AB will be strengthened by Håkan Karlsson from Electrolux Professional.
SiOx will now intensify its work in the garment / textile field as well as in industrial applications, such as cleaning of silicone rubber articles, foaming of bioplastics as replacement for fossil-based expanded polystyrene and treatment of leather.
Treatment of garments, as well as industrial applications offer clear benefits in terms of energy usage and avoidance of emissions to the environment.
The parties will jointly present the extended offerings to the market, such as at the Interschutz fair in June 2022 in Hannover.
